I've been doing some research on what the ideal backup hard drive and personal media server solution for me would be and came across the following products that seem to fit the description: WD My Book Live Seagate GoFlex Home Network Storage System Buffalo LinkStation Live Upon reviewing the information on the drives in questions to the best of my ability, there is still one critically important, lingering question I have that I can't find a clear answer to yet. Here is what I mean: Each of these brands (WD, Seagate, Buffalo) for their particular NAS product have their own respective iOS apps that allows the user to access the content of the NAS drive anywhere they happen to be connected to wi-fi. Does that mean the user has to sacrifice being able to play media files through the native Apple-brand iOS apps? To clarify, it sounds like while these NAS manufacturers provide anywhere access to the drive through their apps, that unfortunately means you can't use the native iOS apps to play and control the media on the NAS? Someone please clarify and share if there is a way that the native iOS apps can play and control the media being streamed from the NAS drive.
